Ketogenic Diet Faqs Frequently Asked Questions

Ketogenic diet FAQs frequently asked questions Ketogenic diet FAQs frequently asked questions Here is a compiled list of answers to the FAQs people have. Many people have questions about the ketogenic diet before they get started. So, weve compiled a list of answers to the frequently asked questions that people have. What is keto-adaptation and what does it feel like? The term keto-adaptation refers to your body's transition from burning primarily glucose as fuel, to being able to also use ketones produced from burning body fat. It will take a few days or weeks to feel your absolute best on keto. You may experience symptoms of carbohydrate withdrawal at first, but once you become fat-adapted, you'll find that you won't crave carbs as much anymore. What is the "keto flu" and how can I avoid it? Your body has always relied on glucose as its primary source of energy. Therefore, when you cut carbohydrates drastically, the body is essentially freaking out, until it eventually switches its metabolism to burning fat. This period of adaptation causes the mild physical weakness or lack of energy typical of the flu. This state is temporary and the transition can be facilitated by a few prev Continue reading >>

Fat Loss Calculator: http://bit.ly/2O6rsdo The carb cycling diet is one of my favorite diets because it is one of the fastest way to burn fat while retaining as much muscle as possible. Most people don't know that carb cycling is actually a form of ketogenic dieting. The ketogenic diet is a diet that is lower in carbohydrates, which makes our body convert more dietary fat and body fat in to keytones in the liver. Which it then goes on to use for energy. Like I've said in many of my videos the human body prefers to use carbs as its primary source of energy. You're body won't produce too many keytones on a high carbohydrate diet, because your body won't need extra energy from fat due to the fact that its getting its energy from the more preferred carbohydrates. The only way for our body to use more fat for energy is by not having its preferred source there all the time. Eliminating carbs completely, however can have many drawbacks on our health and well being. Protein, carbs, and fats are all important and necessary for our body. So in comes the cyclical ketogenic diet aka carb cycling and also known originally as the a

The Ketogenic Diet And Hypoglycemia

I wanted to write a technical post about a question I keep getting regarding the ketogenic diet and hypoglycemia. Even if youre not into the keto diet, I think you may find some useful ideas to makelow blood sugar less invasive in the short term. I recently shot a series of videos about the ketogenic diet and diabetes as part of my daily YouTube vlogging and you can check those out and subscribe here. My general goal in my diabetes management is minimalism. Minimal intervention, treatment and daily impact. The most basic manifestation of this is to aim for the use of less insulin, which can create greater blood sugar stability. This strategyled me to a low carb diet. The need to have athletic performance in addition to the blood sugar stability led me one step further to the keto diet. Using less insulin and eating fewer carbs means that lows do still happen but less frequently and they are easier to handle. Consider driving an empty truck down a hill. Its going to be easier to stop than if its loaded down and has greater momentum. The same concept applies to insulin loads and slowing the drop of blood sugar. Simply lightening the load can simplify control of the vehicle. When a l Continue reading >>

    So I was told that you need to be in the range of 70-80 for glucose and 1.5-3.0 to be in Ketosis and be fat adapted. So what is the difference between fat adapted or being in ketosis the whole time.
    My numbers would rarely get in the 70-80's range but mainly would like to hang out around 85-94 Rane with a Keytone reading of 1.5 and greater. Although I was told on this Facebook group that I'm not fat adapted and perhaps not in Ketosis?
    Also my glucose readings were always higher in the mornings with a few exceptions of being in the high 70's.
    Can anyone shed light on this, I feel that the keto community has different optimal ranges for what they think is correct?

    Thanks in advance.

    OK - "in ketosis" simply means your liver is producing ketones from partially metabolised fat. If you are more than 0.5 on your ketone meter, you are in ketosis. That will happen with about 48 hours of fasting or a few days of very low carb intake. It's an ephemeral state - eat more carbs, you'll make less ketones - eat less carbs, you'll make more ketones.
    Fat -adapted means that all the enzymes to do with fat metabolism have ramped up, so you are really good at burning fat. Also, your muscles become less keen to take up glucose because they want to leave it for the brain. Some people who low carb find their fasting glucose actually rises after a few months because of this effect.
    As to glucose levels - do you have diabetes? A normal fasting glucose is between 70 and 110, with 70-90 being preferred. I've seen keto people saying that blood glucose above 110 will prevent you being in ketosis. Well, according to my meters, that's a pile of poo, because I've seen 2+ on my ketone meter and 7 (126) on my glucose meter at the same time. But I have diabetes. Maybe in people without diabetes, a blood glucose above 110 only happens if they've eaten a load of carbs, and it's that which prevents ketosis rather than their glucose level per se.
    What enables ketosis is low carb intake. What prevents it is eating more carbs.... and maybe too much protein. More on the difference here:

    Being Fat Adapted Versus "In Ketosis" (Pt.1/3)
    “I got kicked out of ketosis.” If I never hear or read those six words, in that order, ever again, I’ll be one happy individual. ...

    Also be aware that, once you are fully fat adapted, your ketone levels may well fall. Richard and Carl have covered this on the podcast - you become more efficient at making enough ketones for your needs, but not too many. I'd been keto about 3 months when I got my ketone meter - my readings were always over 1.5, usually over 2. Another 4 months on, I rarely get above 1 unless I fast for 24 hours - my usual 20-30g carbs per day and 16/8 or 18/6 IF usually has me between 0.3 and 1. Just tested now - after 12+ hour fast, a keto day yesterday and 1 hour run this morning - BG 6.7 (120), ketones 0.5. BG was 6.1 (110) when I got up - exercise can raise it in the short term, but reduces it long term.

    Nope no diabetes on my end, I'm pretty active my events are bodybuilding and powerlifting, I have about 8% bf weighing around 155-160lbs, 39 years of age.
    This is what I read in today fasted.
    85 glucose and 3.3 Keytones this morning.

    Wondering what is the norm for being in ketosis and also fat adapted. I think what I've heard is that you have to be in a sweet spot of 70-80 glucose and 1.5-3.0 Keytones in order to be fat adapted.

The two main metabolites created are beta hydroxybutyrate (BHB) and acetoacetate. When you are eating low carb, insulin levels are low. Your brain and muscle need fuel. When there is no sugar, messages are sent to the liver to make ketone metabolites. 01:47 When you are exercising or fasting, your adipose tissue releases triglycerides and free fatty acids to be repackaged as ketones. Muscle tissue likes to use acetoacetate. BHB fuels muscle contraction. Your brain requires BHB when blood sugar is low. 02:30 BHB has secondary signaling properties. BHB downregulates the NLRP3 inflammasone network, which turns o Continue reading >>
